While some meats only require a quick sear in a hot pan to gain “succulent” status, others benefit from many hours of slow cooking. These meats are great for the colder months of the year when everyone hunkers down and craves comfort above all else.

After hours of cooking, pork shoulder can be pulled apart into soft strands. Perfect for (surprise) pulled pork, but also great in Mexican pork carnitas.
Similar to pork shoulder in texture, beef brisket seems to melt after multiple hours of low cooking. Serve as is with mashed potatoes, or use in beef po’boy sandwiches.
Beef Short Ribs
Cook until tender and falling off the bone. Serve with a full-bodied red wine to match the richness.
